About Heifer International:
Becoming a bar or bat mitzvah is significant, and Heifer International wants to be a part of your celebration. At the heart of Heifer’s work is a notion similar to tzedakah: that it is our duty to help those in genuine need.
Our founder, Dan West, felt the same call to do what he could for others. As a farmer from Indiana, he spent time as a relief worker during the Spanish Civil War. He soon discovered that a meager cup of milk rationed once a day to weary refugees was not enough.
And then he has a thought: what if they were given cows?
Heifer International grew from that thought, not a cup but a cow. For more than 70 years we have remained true to this idea. Our work, which provides livestock and environmentally friendly agricultural training, is the spark families need to lift themselves out of poverty.
When you choose Heifer for your mitzvah project, you’re fulfilling the commandment to do good and also helping our dream of ending hunger and poverty become a reality.
